Quite black with a nice solid mocha head. Aroma of heavy roast, lots of bittersweet chocolate, espresso. Taste of lots of black coffee, espresso, roast, bitter chocolate that lasts long into the palate. This beer has a lot of "chocolate" action going, but it’s not sweet. It’s all dark high-coco percent bitter chocolate stuff. Very nice.

Bottle pours pitch black with foamy tan head. Extremely creamy, smooth, thick body. Aromas of roast, chocolate, earth. Moderate bitterness is offset by sweetness. Like drinking a milk-shake. Very nice.

UPDATED: JUL 11, 2013 Pours black with a medium-sized thick head. Aroma of dark chocolate, licorice and a little coffee, also a pronounced character of oak and vanilla. Nicely roasted maltiness appear too. Taste is fully roasted, very malty with especially flavours of coffee, licorice and vanilla noticeable. Only a hint of alcohol in the finish. Hops don?t bite very much but add balance. Nearly full body, thick, low carbonation. Excellent, delicious strong stout.

Excellente ! Elle ne semblait pas payer de mine mais est réellement intéressante, assez complexe et franchement réussie. Le nez est assez complexe et changeant au fur et à mesure de son évolution en température et en oxydation. Au début, il y a pas mal de torréfaction un peu brute et d’alcool, pas super engageant. Rapidement, on part ensuite sur des notes un peu plus fumées, beaucoup plus chocolatées ensuite soutenues par ce qui ressemble fort à un bourbon assez doux ce qui donne un fond biscuit. La bouche a une attaque torréfiée franche mais pas agressive. La dominante est chocolatée et on peut sentir du café (du vrai) en fond. Le bourbon n’était pas un leurre, on le sent assez bien en bouche ce qui est vraiment une belle surprise et forme un superbe équilibre. A fur et à mesure que la bière est au contact de l’air, le café prend largement le dessus et le bourbon s’efface pour juste le soutenir en fond. On y trouve même des petites notes salées ! La finale est torréfiée mais présente des nuances de vert et de notes herbacées genre black IPA. La longueur est du même tonneau mais présente des notes de café bien plus franches.

Pours almost black in the glass with a beige head. Aroma has coffee with some chocolate, there is also some sugar.Taste is very smooth with an espresso quality and some cocoa powder. Mild bitter finish that gives the beer great balance.
